Go to the local library and obtain a repair manual for any escort up to 1994. Your car has the OBD 1 which is easy to access codes from but you will need the key as there are many codes that can be stored. Basically you take a paper clip and short across the diagnostic link and the engine light will flash but again there is a procedure you need to follow. I have done it many times but not on an Escort; but is is not hard once you get the manual.

Will the engine wiring harness from a 74 Mazda B1600 work on an 84 B2000?

I do not know that it would not work.I would strongly advise you NOT to use a older wiring harness in a newer model due to wiring breaking down,corrosion,brittle insulation.However you should check into something like which should offer a new harness,complete directions,and a sure fit for your model.Time wise and problems a new harness is much simplier and worry free not to mention the cost is prettty cheap and piece of mind.
